KPXL-TV, virtual and UHF channel 26, is an Ion Television owned-and-operated television station serving San Antonio, Texas, United States that is licensed to Uvalde. The station is owned by Ion Media Networks. KPXL-TV maintains offices located on Bandera Road (between Loop 410 and Highway 16) in northwest San Antonio, and its transmitter is located off Highway 173/RM Road 689 on the Medina-Bandera County line (west-northwest of Lakehills).
The station first signed on the air on February 19, 1999; KPXL was built and signed on by Paxson Communications (the forerunner to Ion Media Networks) as an owned-and-operated station of Ion Television predecessor Pax TV.
The station's digital channel is multiplexed:
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Network|
Because it was granted an original construction permit after the FCC finalized the DTV allotment plan on April 21, 1997 , the station did not receive a companion channel for a digital television station. KPXL-TV discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 26, on June 12, 2009. The station "flash-cut" its digital signal into operation UHF channel 26.
